Imagine sitting on your porch enjoying a friendly conversation with your loved one, when all of a sudden, you hear gunshots.  Everyone runs for cover.  You scurry in your house calling for your loved one; only to find out one of the stray bullets hit him/her.  In a panic mode of mind, you call 911.  He/she dies before the ambulance arrives.  Just moments earlier you were laughing, drinking lemonade and reminiscing.  What happened?

Gun violence, drugs, loss of jobs, homes, and loss of loved ones have placed us in a world of change.  When you walk outside to inhale the not so fresh air, do you notice a change in the air?  Not just the staleness of it, but the very life of it.  Life is dying slowly.  We are living in a world where no one cares about each other anymore.  Siblings are against siblings, children are against parents…no one is speaking to each other…someone is seeking revenge.

How did we get to this point in our life?  When do we decide to take matters in our own hands and stop loving for each other?  Have you ever wondered why natural disasters are happening and the weather just can’t seem to make up its mind?  Is it global warming or is it GOD taking back what belongs to HIM?

As a people, we need to think about what we are doing and why?  Who are we impacting with our decisions? 

I believe if we want to see change happen positively, it has to start with how we perceive the world and others around us.  We have all sinned and come short of pleasing GOD.  No one is perfect, not one.
